adamson, patrick - Scottish prelate. Born in Perth, during forty years he called himself variously Constyne, Constean, Consteane, Conston, Constant, or Constantine. Educated at St. Andrews University, after serving as minister of Ceres in Fife he went as a tutor in 1566 to France, where he was imprisoned for describing in a Latin poem the son of Mary Queen of Scots as lord of France and England. After hiding for seven months, owing to disturbed political conditions, he returned to Scotland and was appointed minister at Paisley and, in 1576, archbishop of St. Andrews. After a long contest with the Presbyterian party, he was ox-communicated in 1586 and in 1588, and died a poor pensioner.
